Drake Passage
Exquisite Antarctica 2011

Antarctica travelers often discuss crossing the Drake Passage. They categorize the crossing in one of two ways: Drake Lake or Drake Quake. Lucky me, I get the Drake Lake! The water isn't quite as calm as a lake, but I certainly don't feel seasick at all. The day is full of meeting my fellow travelers, the crew of the One Ocean Navigator and learning all about Antarctica! I spend my free time reading Shackleton's journals and watching the birds as they fly over the bridge.
